Hi everyone,

 

As you may have seen elsewhere, I'm in the process of creating some Future Timeline merch. Although a large portion of items will feature our brand/logo, I'm also keen to offer products based purely on future-themed artwork, i.e. No logo.

 

So, here are some rough mock-ups I've put together, showing four possible clock designs. The "Shutterstock" and other watermarks will obviously be removed if/when I use these designs and purchase the full licenses.

 

It would be extremely helpful to me if you could vote in the poll above. :) Any other feedback you can provide would also be appreciated. This will give me an idea of what's popular and what isn't.

 

This whole merchandise thing is still at the early stages – these clocks are literally the first of maybe 15-20 items I hope to eventually add, e.g. T-shirts, mugs, mouse mats, phone covers, bags, etc. Right now, I'm just playing around with some futuristic designs and layouts. I may end up abandoning the whole thing if it doesn't take off. But hopefully it goes well and can provide us with a new source of revenue for this site.

 

Either way, please let me know what you think. Please be as honest as you like. If you think something is rubbish, tell me.

 

Or maybe you have an image(s) you'd like to suggest: https://www.shutterstock.com

 

Thanks!!

Will

Do you think with this, you'll be able to make this forum your job? I hope so.

These are cool clocks!

 

Remnds me of Asherons call portals (<- Youtube link)

 

It would probably push the clock cost too high for now, but give it a few years and you could do a cool video clock which is basically a circular screen showing an animation (in this case a wormhole thing) then either it has the time over the front (as above) or it shows you the time when it notices you looking directly at it.

Option 4 because it closely resembles the website design.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

To be honest, I am more the minimalist type of guy, so neither of these is really my type.

But If I had to choose one, I'd pick the most symmetrical one (number 4).

1 is the most contemporary imo.

2 is the oldest looking but is my favorite.

3 and 4 are generic.

I think the idea is to monetise the site which he is already spending lots of time on, rather than starting a whole new online business?

 

Then he has:

Regular Job,

FT,

Other online business,

"having some sort of life outside work"

 

Realistically he's only going to be able to do 3 of those things consistently, and one of them is needed long term to stop him going crazy. 

 

And if the other business actually makes him money then it would rapidly become "Regular Job"+"Online Business"+"having some sort of life outside work" and then FT would be gone!
